From Sara of Aisle Candy... The editorial took place in the historic Ford motor company assembly plan in San Francisco CA, and while that sounds rough and maybe a bit mechanical, the space was light filled, old single pane windows, skylights and natural muslin backdrops. We had the idea to get a few different looking "brides" together to showcase how different and unique brides are. Our focus was hair and makeup but of course we had a some amazing gowns by Vera, Tara LaTour and others. Our amazing hair and makeup team, Mimi & Taylor knocked it out of the park with fresh pink hues, unique hair and fresh flowers.
